Swimming Lessons!

Well, we are finally getting around to swimming lessons for these two... and they are loving it! Carsten's teacher is Catherine and he likes her (except today she dunked him and he wasn't so pleased and won't stop talking about it). Reese is doing great--he moved up a level today--on day two! Cousin Justin is also going with us, but he is still working on getting in... might take some time.

Wedding Weekend

Reese and Carsten were in a wedding on Friday night--Joren and Katelyn's wedding...
They did very well--I had told them they needed to smile a lot and it looks like they did!

Some of the other guests... crazy relatives.

The boys with the bride and groom...

Reese and Carsten got to ride around the golf course with this man (don't know him, but very nice!). They loved it!

We then went to another wedding Saturday morning 3 hours away... I forgot to take my camera (it was safe at the hotel...), so no pictures. This time it was Jim's cousin, Thomas, who got married. Busy, but very fun weekend!

Carsten and Daddy out being "farmers" on our new to us riding mower (for the worried grandmas--Jim had already mowed and Carsten was just doing the driving. :)

Carsten's Birthday!

Carsten wanted a farmer hat cake (I tried...) and he wanted to go to "Vurgerville" for lunch! Papa and Auntie Alicia and Uncle Todd and cousins met us there.

Carsten with his helicopter from Papa.
He was quite tired after lunch and is still asleep in the car clutching his helicopter...

We celebrated Carsten's birthday today as we didn't have time yesterday... This bottom picture here is him opening his present from us on his brother's birthday (they picked them out themselves the day before Reese's birthday and it didn't seem fair to make Carsten wait 2 weeks to open his!).

I enjoy looking back at pictures of my boys and so I thought I'd put up Reese through the years for his birthday--a couple days late... I'll have to get busy and do some for Carsten tomorrow! This picture of Reese at 0 is also of Grandma Paula as it is the two year anniversary of her passing... We miss her greatly!
